TS3: ToughStation Specifications Fully Sealed for Harsh HMI

10.4″ – 43″ Screen Sizes

VarTech’s industrial-grade, gasket sealed ToughStation series of monitors and computers are available in 10.4″ to 43″ screen sizes and constructed of 316 stainless steel or black powder-coat aluminum.

The rugged display’s fully sealed enclosure is corrosion and moisture resistant for use in work environments that require frequent washdowns and chemical sanitation. Shock and vibration resilient components and harnessed cables reduce strain on internal parts yielding additional ruggedness to the overall design.

This series is available with several powerful embedded computer options for continuous use in demanding HMI processes throughout many industrial applications. RoHS Compliant
